Ditto for Bargnani. He's been one of the few bright spots this season. Bigs usually take longer to develop. He's easily leading the team in blocked shots and has improved in all aspects of his defense. He's also totally more assertive in the paint on offense.

True.
I am actually glad to see development.

-Moving his feet improved
-Team defense improved
-Defensive IQ improved
-overall his defense improved vastly from his rookie year
-offensive game, he is thinking on the floor he should remain more calm, buth is mid-range shots have improved
-driving to the whole is alright, but slightly improved
-3pt shots are being shot from diff. places now instead of the top of the 3pt line

Overall he is improved, just needs time, and hopefully he will be worth the #1 pick.

That's true, he did do wonders for Bosh. But he didn't develop Bargnani and Joey like he did Bosh. Bosh was blessed with talent but Bargnani and Joey needed to be nurtured. He didn't develop Bargnani into the star player he was supposed to be or Joey into that decent off-the-bench guy that every team needs. Bargnani could've been developed but Sam failed and now Bargnani is just an average player and Joey isn't even average.

Joey ****king Graham? and a banged up new player J O'niel who hasn't played in couple games ...... common now look what sam was given to work with!

I stopped reading when you said Bargs had been in the league 4 years...
